John Locke - An Essay Concerning Human Understanding - 2 Volumes, 7th Edition, Vol. 1 (1716), Vol.2 (1715)

£500.00

Product description

These two volumes contain the seventh edition of John Locke's "An Essay Concerning Human Understanding In Four Books".

Both books are octavo (8" x 5") and bound in contemporary full calf, decorated to front and rear with an embossed and lined design. The spines have five raised bands with gilt lettering. The covers are in general very good condition, though there is some rubbing and bumping along the edges and to the corners.

Volume 1. 371pp. Published 1716 by J. Churchill and Samuel Manship. Contains a frontispiece picture of Locke, title page, a dedication to Thomas Earl of Pembroke and Montgomery, an Epistle to the Reader, Contents, and the first two books. There is a previous owners signature to the front end-paper. The book is in very good condition for it's age, clean and still tightly bound. There is some minor age related staining, mostly confined to the page edges, and to the front and back end-papers where the glue used to attach the page block to the cover has discoloured with age.

Volume 2. 340pp plus index. Published 1715 by J. Churchill and Samuel Manship. Contains title page, contents, books 3 and 4, and an extensive index. As with volume 1 the book is in very good condition for it's age, with again a signature to the front end paper, and some minor age related staining.

In summary these two volumes are in very good condition for their age, still clean and tightly bound. There is some minor age related staining, but it does not detract from the books overall.
